All Decade Defense
Perusing the bookfaces and a site simply called "Auburn Football" (They look official and everything) listed their Top 10 All Decade Defensive team.  As with all opinion lists, there's plenty of room to question, and this one is no different.

D-linemen:  Derrick Brown and Nick Fairly. 

Linebackers: Deshaun Davis, Josh Bynes and Cass McKinzy

D-backs:  Jermaine Whitehead, Rudy Ford, Chris Davis, Carlton Davis and Noah Igbonagobaneez


Why only 2 big boys in the trenches?  Could Carl Lawson and Dee Ford not make the cut?  As for linebackers, I guess these are okay because when you think about it, we haven't exactly been Linebacker U over the last decade.  Not getting the Rudy Ford pick.  Did he have 12 interceptions that I forgot about?  And Chris Davis....you'll always be #11 in our program, #1 in our heart forever.  But I don't recall anything special about his work in the backfield either.

Anyone you think was left out or shouldn't be on the list?  Correct my misremembrance on Ford and Davis if they did proper work.
Boy, giraffes are selfish.  Just running around, looking out for #1....getting hit by lightning.....

Re: All Decade Defense
Jerraud Powers is a glaring omission.
You can keep a wooden stake in your trunk
On the off-chance that the fairy tales ain't bunk
And Imma keep a bottle of that funk
To get motel parking lot, balcony crunk.

I would think so too, but I believe he went to the Colts prior to 2010.

Re: All Decade Defense
Neiko was always fond of Def Leppard song lyrics.  Especially:

Whatever you do
I'll be two steps behind you
Wherever you go
And I'll be there to remind you
That it only takes a minute of your precious time
To turn around
I'll be two steps behind

Does his NFL longevity say anything about his AU career?

Multiple things.
"Hey my friends are the ones that wanted to eat at that shootty hole in the wall that only served bread and wine.  What kind of brick and mud business model is that.  Stick to the cart if that's all you're going to serve.  Then that dude came in with like 12 other people, and some of them weren't even wearing shoes, and the restaurant sat them right across from us. It was gross, and they were all stinky and dirty.  Then dude starts talking about eating his body and drinking his blood...I almost lost it.  That's the last supper I'll ever have there, and I hope he dies a horrible death."

Re: All Decade Defense
Look no further than the absence of Jake Holland at LB to know this is a shootty attempt at naming a legitimate all decade team.

Agreed.  He would hit you so hard you ended up on top of him somehow.

A veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to 'The United States of America ' for an amount of 'up to and including my life.' That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.'
